I've been hearing somebody running around the attic for a bit. yesterday I set a Have A heart trap and went to check it and it had been tripped but empty. We'll, I went and got another spoonful of peanut butter for the trigger and guess who was sitting there looking at me?! A weasel!!!
Stay tuned! This could get interesting!

Yikes! Aren't weasels mean, like badgers?

Was just reading the Parents Advisory for the movie Oculus, and under the "Alcohol and Drugs" section was this sentence:

A woman drinks two large servings of wine with the bottle on the dining room table as she feeds her two children toast for dinner.

Sounds like my life of late.  ha2ha  Kidding!

NOFX is great. They haven't made a bad album in 25 years and they're one of the funniest and most entertaining live bands you'll ever see. Especially their albums 'Punk in Drublic' and 'So Long and Thans for All the Shoes' are great. Also be sure to check out their 'Backstage Passport' documentary. It's about a really crazy world tour they did a few years ago. NOFX figured that their tours were too safe and smooth, they wanted to do another tour that would be a complete disaster like in the old days. So they got a few really shady South American promotors with bad reputations to set up some shows for them, went to Asian countries where virtually nobody ever heard of NOFX, and to countries where they had a good chance of getting in trouble with authorities simply for being a punk band. And they brought a chronically drunk road manager. That's one of the greatest rock 'n' roll adventures you'll ever see.

Sounds great Joost, I'll check it out. Have you ever seen 'em live? I love Punk In Drublic, excellent combination of menacing speed and catchy hooks. And 'My Heart is Yearning' is just hilarious. I'll have to look for other of their albums.

David Hepworth on his blog has described 'The Rolling Stones' as the greatest debut LP of all time and, despite my love for 'Please, Please Me' (my fave Fabs LP), I'm inclined to agree with him.

However, the amount of Muddy Waters, Jimmy Reed, Little Walter, Otis Rush, Magic Sam, Elmore James etc. etc. LPs and CDs which have been bought as a result of that record in the last 50 years, is probably its greatest achievement.

NOFX are good too, I love bands who don't take themselves seriously. Haven't heard much Green Day, but Basket Case is a classic (then again, they also have that song with the "I hope you had the time of your life" part, ugh).

'Kerplunk!' and 'Dookie' by Green Day are excellent, lots of really great songs on those albums. '39/Smooth' and 'Insomiac' have a few good songs too. But you can live without everything they did after that.

I got into punk more out of curiousity (to get a better historical perspective on the late 70's musically), rather than having liked what I heard. But there are some bands I really came to enjoy. I love the first 5 Ramones albums (with Road to Ruin as my favourite), great rock 'n' roll. Play their self-titled back to back with Little Richard's debut and you'll find the same type of energy, excitement and fun. The Clash are great too. Not too many bands can start out as punk then go in a million directions without losing the spirit. The Sex Pistols record is pretty entertaining, if not memorable throughout. Steve Jones is the true star of the record, not Johnny Rotten IMO (or God forbid, Sid Vicious, who doesn't even play on it). NOFX are good too, I love bands who don't take themselves seriously. Haven't heard much Green Day, but Basket Case is a classic (then again, they also have that song with the "I hope you had the time of your life" part, ugh).

Interesting thoughts Real01. I'm wondering if, for I saw her Standing there it's more of a musical choice than lyrical. By putting "And" in,  the line starts easily on the first downbeat of the measure.  To do that without the "and" you'd need to stretch out the "the" which might rob the song of some of the momentum

Actually just realised I miscounted the beats. It's not the first beat at all. As you were.
